Festive Tree Platter
This party platter is made up of virtually carbohydrate-free ingredients. What’s even better is that you can tweak it to your children’s likes and dislikes. That said, you may be pleasantly surprised at how much more responsive kids can be when healthy foods are simply presented in a different way. Tomatoes on their own may not be as appealing, but when they crown a colorful Christmas tree, little ones may just gobble them up.
Healthy Holiday Treat Recipes
Kids love helping out in the kitchen — and who doesn’t need a sous chef when it’s time to whip up munchies for special party or holiday breakfast? These recipes straight from Dishing It Up Disney Style: A Cookbook for Families with Type 1 Diabetes are the perfect way to involve the whole family in the feast!
Holiday Sandwich Treats
Put holiday-themed cookie cutters to healthier use! Cutting sandwiches into fun shapes to fit the occasion is an easy way to fill kids up with a balanced snack that’s still part of the fun. Stuff with sweet ingredients such as sliced strawberries and almond butter, or go the savory route and fill with fresh turkey and cheese topped with lettuce and tomato or avocado.
